YWCA hosts the Mobile Medical Unit in Elkhart


The Saint Joseph Regional Medical Center's Mobile Medical Unite was at the Elkhart YWCA on Friday, doing mammograms.  The month of October is not only National Breast Cancer Awareness Month, but also Domestic Violence Awareness Month, so the Susan G. Komen Foundation found this a good fit.

The Mobile Medical Units Mammographer, Denise Hammerquist says it is important to get a regular mammogram.  "If you are due for a mammogram," Hammerquist said, "you can come on the mobile unit; if you aren't due in October that is ok, the unit is out everyday of the week, every month of the year."

There are some criteria for women seeking a mammogram at the mobile unit. You must be over the age of 40 and have a medical doctor to send the results to. Bring your Medicaid, Medicare, or insurance card to the appointment.  If you do not have insurance but need a mammogram, please schedule an appointment.  Programs and limited funding opportunities are available for women without insurance, based on qualifications and availability.
